Shelby Harris

By Allison R. Stormo

College of Education alumna Shelby Harris will be showing up in the living room of viewers across the U.S. in September.

Shelby HarrisHarris is one of four public school teachers being featured in the two-hour CBS special “Teach” being broadcast Friday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. Harris, a 1998 graduate in elementary education, teaches seventh- and eighth-grade math at Kuna Middle School. She is joined by three other teachers: Joel Laguna of Los Angeles, Lindsay Chinn of Denver and Matt Johnson of Denver, who were followed by cameras during the 2012-13 school year.

Actress Queen Latifah plays host of the special which is directed and produced by Davis Guggenheim who is best known for his documentaries “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Waiting for Superman” as well as TV series “Deadwood,” “Numb3rs” and “NYPD Blue.”

The special is a Participant Media and Pivot TV Presentation and Little Room production. “Teach” kicks off Participant Media’s 18-month social action campaign in partnership with Teach.org to inform and engage students and recent graduates as they consider career choices. The initiative aims to rebrand and reinvigorate interest in the teaching profession.

Harris caught the attention of the director through her involvement in the nation’s first statewide implementation of the Khan Academy in Idaho pilot project with financial backing from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation. Khan Academy is an online tutorial site where Idaho students can utilize the technology to learn new concepts in the classroom and allowing teachers to offer more one-on-one instruction.

TEACH is coming to Moscow on Thursday, November 14th at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Center.  Reserve your seats
